Just had a Big Mac.
Yea... they're always so fucking vague.
Can we have clarity?
Yes of course, we're working very closely with head teachers and schools to make sure that everything will be ready, and it will be ready.
Thanks for the clarity.
People are dumb for sure, but our Government are hardly leading this well.My wife has been back full time with reception kids for some time now (on hols now obvs) a couple of other bubbles at her school had kids in with symptoms, where the idiot parents sent them in regardless and ended up having to self isolate.
People are dumb, it's going to be a shit show.
Some of the stuff has been quite clear, right up until a Tory MP is caught doing the exact opposite, then they flip flop about a bit and decide it was only a suggestion anyway, or compulsory but only on Wednesdays or something.Why would they start introducing clarity now? Nothing about any of their messaging since this started has been clear.
If he'd shot someone in the face they'd be reiterating that murder laws do have considerable leeway for concerned parents with blurred vision in this regard.Except for "Dominic Cummings did nothing wrong" they didn't have any problem repeating that over and over...
No, no it wouldn't.People are dumb for sure, but our Government are hardly leading this well.
The initial advice was 'Shut the schools, socially distance, or you're all going to die of Covid' now that's changed to 'OK Teachers need to socially distance, but kids don't need to'
The reason why is because it's not possible to open schools and have kids socially distance because new schools especially are built with the bare legal requirement of space per student in a room.
There's also lots of kids that live with their grandparents and other vulnerable people, and parents will no longer have the choice whether to send their kids in or not.
Sure, missing out on school is damaging educationally and socially, but having a loved one die because you went to school would be even more damaging.
Because they opened them with social distancing in mind - and they only partly opened like the schools in the UK did.No, no it wouldn't.
The rest of Europe appear to have open schools without the entire population dropping dead, why is the UK different?
Exactly.In my school in Denmark back in the 90's, we were maybe 12-20 kids to a class. Less the older we got, as people moved away from the area we lived in. When I moved to the UK, it was always 30+ , with the exception of some student choice subjects, such as German, or Exam Physical Education.
I can see my Danish classroom being social distance compliant... just about. Classes in the UK... no way, we were packed like sardines into rooms smaller than we had in Denmark. That said, a few classrooms were double sized, usually for teachers who were department heads, and they used the back for storage. If they shuffled the storage into smaller classrooms, used gyms, assembly halls, art rooms, craft studios as classrooms, you could maybe make it work for core subjects. Maybe a morning class schedule for year 7 8 and 9s, three classes, from 8-11AM, an hour to wipe down every table and chair, then years 10 and 11 from 12 to 4 in the afternoons.
The biggest difference between schools in Denmark vs UK, is that in Denmark we stayed put for most of the day. We had a classroom that belonged to the class, and teachers would come to us, with exceptions for Physical Education and the various arts and craft subjects. In the UK, we wandered the corridors between each class. There is no way to socially distance when doing it that way.
Lots of thick people like Job are blaming immigrants.who apart from Job is blaming immigrants?
